Karl M V Waugh - De Cycled


Published October 2013


These two recordings are very much artefacts of sound, documents of something. 
One is a field recording, albeit a staged field, initially to be used in one project but the recordings around it didn't make the cut, then it was transferred to a solo project. Whilst in the solo project a number of layers were added, it missed out on being on one release and then I decided to remix it and most of those layers were removed, until I became comfortable with the concept of leaving it, almost, completely naked. 
The second track came from a throwaway, jovial and even perhaps piss taking overly long harsh noise album which I made for, dedicated to, and possibly only really ever listened to by a close friend. At some point since then I decided to fold the track almost in on itself, layering up different sections from within the piece to ultimately take up less space. 
Both existed as oddities within my completed recordings, unhappy alongside other pieces. The logic of pairing them came through their similarities, both initially recorded on tape, both reconstructed away from the initial ideas, both near the 15min mark. As well as their differences, ambient versus heavy, external sound versus internal feedback, de-construction versus over-complication. They found each other, they fell in love. 

Karl M V Waugh is an experimental musician with interests in free improvisation, drone, noise, field recordings and ambient music. Having recorded and performed with The A Band, The Zero Map, Binnsclagg as well as numerous short collaborations his solo work focuses on the concept of long form pieces, tones as a paint, the imperceptible. He has a Doctorate in Mathematics, plays violin, guitar, electronics, writes poetry, paints abstract painting and works as a software engineer.
